"It looks and feels like 1985 every time you ride it. "



Actually, I'd say it feels like 1975. They were terrible handling bikes in 85. My friend owned one the same time I owned a GSXR1100. Compared to the Gixxer the Max’s handling can only be described as lethal.

No way in hell ...

Invest 1 mil at 8% and you bring home twice the national average income just in interest. Therefore, I consider 1 mil. to be a lifetime's worth of income, seeing as I could have that amount and never work again.

So ... how can any CEO's pay that approaches or passes 1mil a year be at all reasonable? No board of directors can possibly hold their CEO responsible for lousy decision making at that point because by the time the numbers roll in and they see the effect of those decisions, the CEO has made enough to walk away forever and never look back. Oh, you are going to *fire me*? Go right ahead and I'll see you on the golf course on Monday.

Compare CEO pay in the EU vs. equivalent sized companies in North America and you will see that CEO pay on our side of the pond is completely out of control.

Yeah, change topic. That’s the only way not to look like quite the imbecile you are …



"I owned one too. 1500 big bore, nitrous, blown, turbo, chain drive, you name it, all the way in excess of 200BHP."



Funny thing is a few weeks ago you made the statement that you never needed a dynojet kit in your v-max as the stock jetting was spot on. Stock jetting with a big bore, nitrous and turbo charging? Sure Einstein.

But Executives don't see it that way - "Greed is GOOD!"

Why else do we have an ENRON scandal?
